South Atlantic Modern Language Association / SAMLA 91 conference Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships
November 8-10, 2019
Westin Peachtree Plaza, Atlanta GA
This panel intends to examine the works of Muslim American poets, novelists, playwrights, jazz musicians, punks, hip hop artists, mipsters, filmmakers, and visual artists, through the lens of language.
Papers for this session may focus on any aspect of Walker Percy’s life and works, either fiction or non-fiction. Especially welcome are topics relevant to the South Atlantic Modern Longauge Association's 2019 conference theme: “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships.” For Percy, the human capacity for language and for naming gives us our identity and is only possible through relationships of intersubjectivity. Percy wrote extensively on language, creating his “radical anthropology” based on his unique semiotic, with these themes pervasive in his novels.

This flightless, multi-site conference (Sept. 18-21, 2019) invites interdisciplinary attention to confluences between environmental and religious perspectives and practices in the long Anglophone nineteenth century (1780-1900). Since that century, anthropogenic climate change has rapidly accelerated, and in response to this legacy we will avoid air travel by digitally connecting events at several conference sites in the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition, this method of networking, by lowering barriers of cost and transportation, promises to enable a more diverse and inclusive range of participation than is often possible at international conferences.
